The conversations about the Winston Churchill/Hitler facts got moved to a seperate thread because they kind of got off of the point of the thread.

That's a cool thing to hear! It's awesome to hear about something like that just because it's a holiday.
I read on Wikipedia that termites are actually suicide bombers. If ants invade their nest, the termites run up to the ants and rupture these glands full of a sticky, poisonous, tar-like substance that keeps them in place in order to protect the nest.
It is impossible to build something that fast. The faster something goes, the heavier it gets, so when you reach relativistic speeds, you need more energy to move faster, but then you get heavier, so you need more energy, and you see where this is going...
To travel at the speed of light would mean you're at an infinite mass, which means you need infinite energy, because E=MC2 tells us that Energy is equivalent to Mass.
